Migration

Migration was a group exhibition of various media, held in 2015 as a fund-raiser. 100 works by father, grandfather and grandson, was made available for sale, in order to support travel expenses for a gap year abroad. The exhibition was themed 'Migration' since Daniel was travelling to the Netherlands where the Venter forefathers came from.

Hidden Horizons

These South African landscape scenes of obscure places were specifically chosen as homage to the nobodys and the nowheres, the shepherd boys and girls with hidden potential. When no person is there to observe that particular view, it still exists without hesitation, in all its fullness. Painting on board, references panel painting - from the Rennaissance era, a more stately approach even into the 18th century.
